How to Get the Best Results With Invisalign

Posted in General, Invisalign, Tips & Advice

Patients love Invisalign aligners for their convenience, comfort, and, of course, discreetness. To get the best results possible at the end of your Invisalign treatment plan, there are important steps to take to keep your teeth and aligners in prime condition. Here are 4 simple tips to help you get the most out of your Invisalign treatment.

Keep Your Teeth & Aligner Clean

Even though you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, taking the time to make sure your mouth is particularly clean twice a day and after meals is essential. Not doing so could extend your treatment plan to remedy oral health issues, such as cavities. When you’re brushing your teeth, don’t forget your aligners! To keep them in excellent condition, be sure to rinse them and gently clean them with your toothbrush everyday.

Follow Your Orthodontist’s Instructions

If you want your Invisalign aligners to work, you must wear them as directed. For most people, this means 22 hours a day. It may be convenient to remove them to eat and clean, but neglecting to pop them back in your mouth when you’re finished could inhibit your teeth’s progress.

Avoid Foods High in Sugar

Food and bacteria can easily get trapped in the crevices of your teeth after meal-times, especially with braces or Invisalign. To lower your risk of tooth decay and ensure your teeth are healthy and bright when your treatment plan comes to an end, avoid excessively sweet snack and drinks, such as candy and sodas.

Don’t Miss Your Orthodontist Appointments

Making it to your routine orthodontic appointments is a critical part in ensuring your teeth progress as expected. To help you achieve the results you desire as quickly as possible, be sure to make your orthodontist checkups a top priority in your busy schedule.
